“SANESA is a vibrant and dynamic organization, acknowledged by the South African Equestrian Federation (SAEF) and SASCOC, and has dedicated itself to promoting all forms of Equestrian sport within South Africa’s schools’ community. The Members of SANESA (Schools) are represented by their Learners. Riders do not need to belong to any other Equestrian Association/Club to participate at any SANESA event.
Each Province in South Africa has SANESA representation and some Provinces are also broken up into Districts. Every Province holds up to 6 SAWMGA competitions in the first 7 months of the year and then the top 4 riders in each level go forward to represent their Province at the annual SANESA National Championships during the September/October holiday.
The most important thing a learner can bring to SANESA is a passion for horses and further, just have fun.” Information from SAWMGA web site.
